"Pearls
  • The diagnostic gold standard for septic bursitis is bursal fluid culture
  • Negative bursal fluid culture does not exclude the diagnosis of septic bursitis, especially if due to a fastidious organism or when antibiotics precede culture
  • A number of other signs are associated with septic bursitis (Table 1) and can be used to support the dx
  • Bursal fluid aspiration should be performed prior to antibiotic use
